To be truly involved in this education human beings, especially children and young people, who are the new members of the human race should aquire the seven fundamental quantities known as the auroras of a good life or the dawn of education. These are the guarantees of life moving forward toward full human development to peoples becoming truly nobile beings.  They are:
